An Indoor Succulent Garden
My daughter and I planted a succulent garden, with one cactus for good measure, and because it’s pink.
We took inspiration from Elsie at A Beautiful Mess and dug in.
Our mini-garden didn’t turn out quite as polished as Elise’s, but we love it just the same.
There’s something about growing things that just makes you feel alive and happy.
Unfortunately, we’re really good at killing things in our house, just green things. I have a giant black thumb to go along with my vintage tub full of plants that need full sunlight, temperatures above seventy degrees, and a drought.
FringeMan came home, look in the pot, and said, “We’re living in the wrong state for these plants.”
I fear he is right, but by golly, I’m going to do my best to keep these plants alive and thriving. If I have to stand over them for eight hours a day with a light, I’ll do it!
Ok, maybe I won’t, but I might make my kids do it.
At least I purchased these plants from a store and didn’t go digging them up under the cover of darkness.
There’s always that.
I’m learning, slowly, but surely.
